Don't know much about central Mexico, but from the Yucatan and Chiapas to Central America and Venezuela I have learned 3 most valuable lessons.
First, a little bit of Spanish and a few extra coins go a long way when seeking permission to enter a field or if confronted. The less grubby I dress the less problems I seem to have. The fancier I dress, the more money they want for permission. Somewhere in between works best.
Second, always remember that, in a lot of great picking spots, you may be seen as an an intruder by hongeros - people who earn their meager living by picking and selling shrooms to gringos. I like to by some from them if approached, or I teach them how to make prints in the field, or show them about proper storage (those banana leaves suck!)
Third, don't screw with Evangelicos. I have noticed a big change recently where missionaries and other religious types in Mexico and Central America are preaching about the evils of mushrooms. This has resulted in many fields being virtually closed down or ''policed'' by religious nuts.
Other than that, hunting down here is pretty much the same as all over. Maybe the fields are a little more rugged and the chiggers a little more pesky, but it is all worth it.
